Executive Director, Design Institute for Health
Professor of Practice
Stacey Chang serves as the executive director of the Design Institute for Health, a collaboration between the Dell Medical School and the College of Fine Arts at the University of Texas at Austin. It is a first-of-its-kind institution, dedicated to applying design approaches to solving systemic health care challenges as an integrated part of a medical education and training program.
Working with invested stakeholders in the healthcare ecosystem, and harnessing the resources of the university, the Institute is focused on creating human-centered solutions in every area of the patient and provider experience – all with a focus on improving people’s health outcomes and health care experiences.
Until 2014, Chang served as the managing director of the Healthcare practice at IDEO, the global design and innovation firm. Clients included governments, research institutions, hospitals, pharma, insurance, medtech, and all the upstarts trying to rewrite the script, in both established and emerging markets.
Chang holds a B.S. degree from MIT and an M.S. degree from Stanford University, both in engineering.
